About Children in Santa’s Dreams 

The Police Activities League (PAL) has founded a Christmas program dedicated to less fortunate children in the Conroe Independent School District. The need criteria for this program is based on personal references from counselors, teachers, principals, and other school staff who work with children every day. Counselors work with parents and PAL in order to maintain the anonymity of our less fortunate children.

Children in Santa’s Dreams provides gifts and stockings for our children enrolled in school and their siblings who may be too young to attend school. Citizens, service organizations, and youth organizations are invited to participate by donating new, unwrapped gifts and/or by attending an annual wrapping party where all donated toys and gifts are organized by age and gender. Each volunteer receives a family identified only by a number. The volunteer is asked to pick out gifts for each child listed and wrap the gifts selected. The number of gifts each child receives is determined by the amount of donations and number of students referred by the program. In past years, 1-3 gifts per child have been given, with the addition of one game per family.
